Description: I was with a group of Explorer Scouts in the interior of Panama watching an Order of the Arrow ceremony around a campfire, but also star gazing at the incredible night sky that comes from being in a remote area. A group of us watched as all of a sudden either 6 or 7 bright lights converged on each other from different directions. They formed a circle, evenly spaced, went around a couple of times, stopped, then shot off at light speed into space.

This was in 1974, and I can't remember exactly how many lights there were (I was too freaked out at the time to bother counting them) but what I saw made a believer out of me! Would love to know if this sighting is documented anywhere. It did make our local Canal Zone newspaper at the time. I keep watching the sky hoping to see something again, but never have. :(
